MainMenu is available through the MAS, but MainMenu Pro is not - is this deliberate or is it a case of the Pro version doing things that Apple won't allow in a MAS app?

Hi there,

It's the latter. You see, Apple prohibits software in the Mac App Store to run system maintenance tasks such as cleaning the system cache.

MainMenu standard edition was designed for those users that prefer to buy software via the Mac App Store and that don't need the system maintenance tasks.

Unfortunately, this means that MainMenu Pro will not be available on the App Store.

When I started Mainmenu Pro3.1.3, it prompted me to download version 3.1.4 but he download fail. And when I attempt to download from the developer website, ol the old version 3.1.3 is there.

What happened?

I don’t understand why v. 3.1.3 is just now being released via MacUpdate because I’ve had it since August 30.

Found another annoying MainMenu behavior in Mountain Lion: When you click ‘About MainMenu,’ the About window doesn't display in front of the currently open apps. For instance, if I’m running Safari when I click ‘About MainMenu,’ its ‘About’ window appears in between Safari windows, so I have to hunt for it — not just between different currently running apps but between the multiple open windows of EACH app.

I love the convenience of having so many oft-used utils in my menubar.

One major problem though: When ‘Show Invisible Files’ is selected, any open Finder windows are closed! Why? That’s really annoying, as I must then re-open everything that was summarily nuked by MainMenu — effectively negating the convenience of the app (and then some, especially if I had a lot of Finder windows open when it was run)!

The reason you have to re-open everything is due to 'Show Invisible Files' has to restart the Finder and hence shut everything down.

Heymini, I assume that is so, but why is it that every other app that performs the same ‘Show Invisible Files’ function automatically and immediately reopens those same Finder windows that are closed as part of the operation, while MainMenu does not? I refer to Onyx, DesktopUtility, Maintenance, Mountain Lion Cache Cleaner, Invisibility Toggler, Invisiblix, Kilometre, IShowHide, etc.

Does anyone know if MainMenu still fails to reopen all the Finder windows that it closes when using its ‘Show Invisible Files’ (and the opposite function of hiding invisible files), as I described in the 2 posts above this one? I’d rather not have to download and install the most recent version just to determine if it functions properly yet (as nearly all other such apps do).

Thanks.

The current version of MainMenu Pro is 3.1.3 (don’t know why this page still lists 3.1.0 as the latest), and it works fine in Mountain Lion.

Love the interface. It is just so convenient to access everything on the Menu Bar for me. Does want I want, when I want it- and, is easily accessible. For me, it is especially useful to maintain Unix Clean-up routines. And, for stopping and restarting balky programs. Recently, had difficulty and the developer was extremely responsive.

I see some people don't understand my comment, the thing is MainMenu was great it did what I wanted it to, and putting it in the menubar is very convenient BUT in the long run I don't use it all the time SO this is the reason for my earlier comment

Since my rating was kinda harsh before I will re-rate this with 3 stars because I did like it and it works well for what the developer intended, but alas it is not for me.

FYI when you quit the program it disappears from the menu bar.

Amazing software, worth of every penny and would recommend it to every Mac user! HOWEVER, I'd like to propose a feature that should be implemented asap! The program is lacking a Scheduled Tasks feature. Where the app would run on system start up and run the custom made tasks at the specified intervals the user sets. I.e. Daily Maintenance runs Daily, Complete Maintenance runs every two months...etc.

Actually, adding scheduled maintenance would be redundant. These processes are already scheduled in OS X by default. They run over night as long as your Mac isn't asleep at the time. UNIX is designed to be running 24/7, thus the expectation that maintenance routines would always be run. It is possible to change this scheduling but it involves CLI tweaking, not advisable to general users. You can look it up if you're interested.
